Favorite Scripture(s) 

[1Jo 4:4 NIV] 4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

[Isa 26:3 NIV] 3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

[Psa 37:1-8 NIV] 1 Of David. Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; 2 for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. 3 Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. 4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: 6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. 7 Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. 8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret--it leads only to evil.

The book of Colossians
